How do you fancy getting paid for making someone smile…?


Full-time, part-time or bank, we will have hours to suit.


The People We Support require that support on every day of the year, and at various times during the day. Therefore, for a permanent contract, you would need to flexible around your working hours, with an availability of anytime, any day, from 7.00am to 10.00pm. If you are not available for all of these hours then we can look at a Bank contract.


Some visits might be for thirty minutes; some could be for six hours. There may be some days where split-shifts are required. We provide whatever support is needed, both for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs, and also for older people, in Colchester and the surrounding areas.


If you are a positive, bubbly, out-going and enthusiastic person, with a genuine desire to add value to people’s lives, then we want to hear from you! A full driving-licence and access to a vehicle are essential.


Personality and a willingness to learn are more important than experience, as full training will be given (in a state-of-the-art office in the heart of Clacton.)


So what will you be doing all day?


You will be supporting individuals to take part in and visit local activities, social clubs, leisure activities… You’ll be helping People We Support to go shopping, to have days out, to attend social and medical appointments, and in doing so, will not only encourage them to make decisions and choices about their lives and what they do, but improve your social life at the same time!


You’ll be promoting dignity and choice, assisting with personal care where needed, and genuinely being the reason why someone smiles. The work can be challenging but the rewards of supporting people to achieve their goals make every day meaningful.


Why not apply today? Your next decision could be the best choice you’ve ever made….


Must be available to work a variety shifts from 7.00am until 10.00pm on any day of the week.

Must have an out-going personality, and a willingness to work across all services.

A driving-licence plus access to a vehicle are essential.


We offer a great range of benefits including an employee discount programme, where you could save up to £1000 a year on things like your weekly shopping, eating out, a new wardrobe, booking a holiday, or even if you’re buying a gift for a friend.


We offer an employee assistance programme, which provides independent advice and support 24 hours a day. We also offer a pension scheme and our employees can also make use of salary sacrifice schemes such as Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work.
